MLB Pipeline has released their list of the top 10 third base prospect, and Texas Rangers third baseman Joey Gallo tops the list. This is the second top-10 list released today he's been ranked #1 on -- he also was first on the Baseball America list of the top 10 Texas Rangers prospects that came out today.
It is interesting seeing these come out after an offseason where there seems to have been a lot of Gallo backlash among fans -- the LSB Community Prospect Rankings had Gallo finish third, behind Lewis Brinson and Nomar Mazara, and the BA Rangers chat had a couple of skeptical "Gallo fans to much to ever pan out, right?" questions. Still, Gallo appears to still be very highly regarded by folks in the game...it may be that Rangers fans are overreacting to his post-promotion struggles from last year when they argue to "trade him while he still has value."
